Revolutionizing Weimar Germany's Public Sphere

Path 3: Step-by-Step Guide - How does the Functional Montage work?

Introduction to this Path 

In his second preface “Foreword: or, it is impossible to write captions for photographs,” Tucholsky leaves instructions for his reader how interact and really grapple with photographs, instead of just consuming them like another piece of mass media. Tucholsky aims to emphasize the individual reading habits, while at the same time not loosing sight of the photograph's problematic lack of ambiguity when it comes to the classification of people as individuals or as types of a social class.
